Staithes

With its higgledy-piggledy cottages and winding streets, Staithes has the air of a place lost in time. Once one of the largest fishing ports on the North East coast, this coastal hamlet is now a well-loved base for exploring Yorkshire's cliff top paths and discovering the delights of rock pooling and fossil hunting on the small sandy beach.

 

Fishing hamlet Once a booming fishing port, this charming hamlet is a great base for coastal walks.


The perfect hideaway

This village's unique charm, with its huddled cottages, towering cliffs and choppy sea, has long been a powerful draw for those interested in fine art, geology and getting back to nature. The ‘old village', located in a small, sheltered cove at the base of the cliff, is peppered with small B&Bs and local fishermen's cottages - the perfect place to spend a long weekend.

An great example of this is Roraima Guest House, which was built in the 1890s by sea captain John Trattles and named after his steamship the SS Roraima. It is an impressive, large three-storey Victorian house built at the top end of the village of Staithes.

Alternatively Peeler's Rest, which joins onto the village's former police house that was built in the 1920's. The single storey building was added some years later and formed the police office and garage.

Exploring the coast

The soaring, rugged cliffs make Staithes a great place for walking and exploring. Take the coastal pathways to the nearby Boulby Cliffs, or visit the northern headland of Cowbar Nab with its tiny hamlet snaking down the rock side. Part of the Cleveland Way runs between Staithes and Skinningrove, where you can explore the remnants of the alum mines that once made the village famous. This headland is also an ideal place to bird watch, with plenty of gulls and other seabirds nesting in the cliffs.

After you've finished exploring you'll definitely have worked up an apetite for some food and Staithes is not short of a tasty treat or two. The Cleveland Corner Bistro is a small seafood speciality restaurant that is passionate about their food and strive to buy most of their fish in the village & landed in either Staithes or Whitby. Or you could try The Endeavour Restaurant who also pull on the fine resources of the area and provide a range of delicious seafood dishes. Also, at the top of the bank, strategically placed for a refreshing cup of tea, you'll see The Tea Shop.

If this isn't enough, The Captain Cook Inn offer freshly prepared meals and where possible source locally produced ingredients to cater for every taste, and The Cod & Lobster offer fresh seafood.

Finally if you're looking to buy fresh produce, look no further than Whitby Seafish who supply seafood from Staithes Fishermen who still use the traditional methods and are only at sea for a matter of hours! This freshness combined with the traditional methods provides truly exceptional quality.

The Staithes Gallery is housed in an elegant Georgian building on Staithes High Street and provides a showcase for the very best contemporary artwork inspired by Staithes and the surrounding area.

Harbour delights

Staithes was once an important fishing base, home to locally built boats and a small fleet of brightly coloured Whitby Cobles. Now, the boats are used by local fishermen to catch cod, lobsters and crabs and some vessels offer short pleasure cruises. The tiny beach and cluster of rock pools make this a wonderful place to explore, and there are so many fossils that this area that it has been nicknamed the ‘Dinosaur Coast' - so keep your eyes open!

Helped along by a cast of colourful characters, ‘Old Jack' tells tall stories from inside his old fishing boat. The series is a mix of live action and animation which allows Old Jack to wander along the seabed, visit tropical islands and fly high in the air on balloons always accompanied by his faithful dog, Salty.
